Kennesaw State University’s School of Music will present its 14th annual Collage Concert on Saturday, Feb. 15, led by Interim Director Leslie J. Blackwell. The concert will feature over 200 students and faculty members raises funds for student scholarships.

“The Collage Concert showcases the best of all we are in the School of Music. It features a kaleidoscope of sound from both faculty and students, including large ensembles, solos, orchestra and band,” Blackwell said.

Special lighting effects and stage design will complement the program with each selection presented in rapid-fire, flowing vignettes in a truly unique performance.

“We only do this once a year, bringing all of the School of Music under one roof for one day to benefit student scholarships. The concert is fast-paced and high energy, and it’s for a great cause,” Blackwell said.
